W.A.S.P. – Announce UK Shows For 40th Anniversary World Tour.

    Few Bands in the history of Rock N’ Roll have ever incited the LOVE, the HATE, the RAW emotional effect this band has had on the world. From the very beginning, in the small venues of Los Angeles  California, and later to the numerous countries worldwide that banned these Winged Assassins from performing live, the band’s unique style of Shock and Rock caused Religious organizations, Local City Councils, Parliaments, and the Washington D.C. Senate to hold hearings in an effort to bar this group from selling records and trashing stages everywhere they played.

    The band’s founding member and frontman Blackie Lawless, has led the group as it’s lead vocalist and primary songwriter since it’s beginning.  His unique brand of visual, social and political comment took the group to worldwide heights and sold millions of records alongside a legacy of sold out shows across the globe for 4 decades. Joined by bassist Mike Duda and guitarist Doug Blair, whose tenures in the band span 26 and 18 years respectively, along with drummer extraordinaire Aquiles Priester, this anniversary tour will take the band and the fans back to where it all started, complete with the stage show extravaganza that many fans have never seen live.

    Frontman Blackie Lawless comments:

    “For the W.A.S.P.  40th Anniversary World Tour we’re going back to the beginning. We’re taking the show back to where it all started. Complete with all the fire and all the blood that shocked the world the first time.”

    “We only did this type of show on the first world tour and never did it again…until now!
    I’m gonna scream and I’m gonna bleed, cause I Wanna be Somebody!
    We’re taking everybody back…back to the beginning!”
